Kampala Guide

The city of Kampala is Uganda's capital and is centrally located close to Lake Victoria. Although this is the country's biggest city visitors seldom experience the crowds and traffic associated with many African cities making this an enjoyable place to see using cheap car hire at Kampala Communication.

Most international visitors arrive via the main airport Entebbe that is located 35 miles from Kampala and transported to the city. There are good hotels spread throughout the capital but the best of these, located on one of the many hills that the city is built upon, are found Nakasero.

Whether you stay in Nakasero or one of the other areas in the city all of the attractions can be reached with car rental at Kampala Communication. These include the Uganda Museum, Nommo Art Gallery, Ugandan National Theatre and both Rubaga and Namirembe Cathedrals.

Kampala also has some superb nightlife with many areas having a good selection of international and local cuisines. One of the most popular evening entertainments is a night at the casino and there are several to choose from including the Kampala and Mayfair or the very exclusive Pyramids casino.

Kampala is also an excellent venue for shopping and the biggest choice of outlets can be found at the Garden City shopping centre. If you are bargain hunting or looking for souvenirs a drive into the city centre with car hire at Kampala Communication will get you to the massive Balikuddembe Market that is also known by its old name, Owino Market.

What most people want to know

The following questions and answers are a selection of the most popular questions. If you do not find the answer to your question, have a look at the Frequently Asked Questions page or contact us.

Is Carrentals.co.uk the cheapest?

Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.

What do I need to do when picking up a car?

To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.

Are there any additional costs?

In general, our rates are all-inclusive. Should there be any additional costs, our booking department will get in touch with you before issuing the invoice. Should you object, you can always cancel your reservation with no obligations attached (at least 48 hours in advance).

In general, Liability Insurance, Fire Insurance, All-Risks Insurance and Theft Insurance are included in the cost of your rental car.

What is a worry-free label?

Only rental companies with a high level of customer satisfaction are eligible to be included in our Worry-Free selection. This rate includes excess cover and unlimited kilometres. Your vehicle will be provided and must be returned with a full tank of fuel. With a vehicle from our Worry-Free selection, you can travel with peace of mind and no hidden costs.
